OmniGraffle 6, Application Support resources, and the Sandbox Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
Since OmniGraffle 6 is considered a different application entirely than version 5 and earlier, existing installed Stencils, Templates, preferences, etc. will not come over automatically from a previous installation.

These resources need to be in OmniGraffle 6's Sandboxed container in order to be seen and used by the application. For those of you who are daring enough to traverse this in the Finder, the location is as follows:

~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniGraffle6/Data/Library/Application Support/The Omni Group/OmniGraffle/

If you've purchased from the Mac App Store, that location is:

~/Library/Containers/com.omnigroup.OmniGraffle6.MacAppStore/Data/Library/Application Support/The Omni Group/OmniGraffle/

So, going this route, you should just be able to copy over the Stencils and Templates from your OmniGraffle 5 install (located at ~/Library/Application Support/The Omni Group/OmniGraffle/) and afterwards, be good to go.

If you're uncomfortable using these rather byzantine paths in the Finder, you can also use the new Resource Browser to add existing resources to OmniGraffle 6.

From the Gear Menu at the lower right hand side of the Resource Browser (available from the File Menu), there's an option to "Add Resources to Library…" and by pointing that at your Home Folder, you should pick up all available OmniGraffle Stencils and Templates therein. NOTE: This action will copy over *every* OmniGraffle Stencil and Template that may be in the directory you've chosen, regardless of whether or not they are in Application Support or not.

ANOTHER NOTE: This action will not copy over any native Visio stencils or templates, those will have to copied over by hand or converted to the appropriate OmniGraffle format.
